Best Ingredients To Use & Why
The Starbucks pumpkin spice latte is made from coffee, cow’s milk, and sugar. Lots of sugar. I’m talking 50 grams in a medium. Yikes!
So, here are the ingredients we’ll use to switch things up a bit:
Coffee – Use your brand of choice — just make it hot and strong for best results. You can also use a pumpkin spice coffee for even more zest!
Milk – Your favorite low carb milk is fine. I like to use almond milk, but you can use coconut milk, oat milk, or even cow’s milk — keep in mind cow’s milk is high in carbs if you’re eating low carb/keto.
Pumpkin – You’ll need a tablespoon of pumpkin puree. Canned is perfect as long as it’s not pumpkin pie filling (which is loaded with sugar).
Sweetener – I prefer Lakanto or Swerve — they’re both made of erythritol, a sugar alcohol that contains zero-calorie and doesn’t spike blood sugar. Both of these brands can be used as a 1:1 swap with traditional sugar, so if you opt for another sweetener, keep that in mind.
Erythritol my favorite of the keto sweeteners for recipes like this one, but allulose will work well too!
How decadent are you feeling??
I think this sugar free pumpkin spice latte is PERFECT as is, but, if you want to take it up a few notches. Consider serving it with sugar free whipped cream on top.
Maybe a drizzle fo ketp syrup? Maybe with a slice of sugar free pumpkin pie?
You do you.
There are a few ways to tweak this latte recipe for a new flavor twist. Here are a few ideas:
- Turn this into a frap. Pumpkin spice frappuccino?! Yes, please! Simply toss the ingredients in a blender along with some ice — be sure to use COLD coffee here.
- Use a different kind of milk. As mentioned, you can use any sort of milk you prefer here — for bonus points check out my how to make almond milk or how to make coconut milk guides and use those!
- Make this decaf.
- Use espresso instead of coffee. Sub in 1 shot.
